Foundation Cigar Company has partnered with Highclere Castle Cigar Company to create a truly elite cigar!
Highclere Castle is a 5000 acre estate and is the regal setting for the hit TV series "Downton Abbey." Highclere’s rich cigar history goes back to 1862, when cigars were first introduced to England.
Nick Melillo, owner of Foundation Cigars, has absolutely outdone himself with the Highclere Castle blend. Highclere's owner, Adam von Gootkin, the current 8th Earl Carnarvon, described is thusly:
“Nick is arguably one of the most well-respected cigar blenders in the industry. Partnering with him to craft this masterpiece cigar speaks to his obsession with quality while embracing the rich history of enjoying cigars at Highclere Castle.”
Highclere Castle features a flawless Ecuadoran Connecticut Shade wrapper laid over Brazilian Mata Fina binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Most notably, a special hybrid leaf called Nicadan is used in the filler...adding a unique and complex flavor to the Highclere Castle cigar.
Flavors are smooth and elegant. Very creamy with notes of pepper, citrus, subtle wood, and cinnamon.
Highclere Castle is an exquisite and sophisticated smoking experience. Very highly recommended!
